Solved Locking a certain part of my forum

Post by Sonny5x5 on February 7th 2012, 2:53 am

Not sure where this topic would go so if it needs moved let me know..

I have a section on my forum called "Alliance", and i only want members from my alliance to join it withough having to create a public group.. (unless i have no choice).

Do i just set up a group on my Admin CP an creat the group there or does each member have to actualy join the group themselves?

Give permissions to that forum for a specific group. Add members to that group, who are eligible as part of your alliance.

Hi!

As Sanket said:
1. Create a group for that members (hidden or not, how do you want).
2. Then go to General => Forum => Categories and forums => Edit that category's permissions: Perms => Then you can set permissions how do you want.

Sorry for entering into discussion Sanket, but I just was more specific. Mr. Green

There is also a tutorial on creating restricted forums if you need it: http://help.forumotion.com/t38399-restricted-forums

If you want to individually give them the permissions to see it without setting up a group, go to:

ACP > Users and Groups > Users > Search Users > Click on their name > Permissions

There, you're able to individually give them moderation to a certain board, or give them permissions to just be able to see the board.
